           Summary: Parameter names not visible in return type in function
                    declarations
           Product: D
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: andrei metalanguage.com


The following code should compile:

typeof(a) identity(T)(T a) { return a; }

void main()
{
    auto x = identity(1);
}

In this case it's trivial to replace typeof(a) with T, but in the general case
(e.g. mixins, complex expressions) it is necessary to access parameter names in
complex expressions inside typeof().

either replace your parameter names with Init!(type) where Init == template Init(T) { T Init; } or use the return value of a delegate literal created on the spot. Example: typeof({ T a; return operationOnA(a); }) somefunc(T)(T a) { ... } I use that technique in scrapple.tools to say "if this string was our function body, what would its return type be?" It's fun! :D --downs

Thanks, downs, worked great. You forgot a pair of parens, so for others'
reference here's the current implementation of binaryPred in std.functional:

template binaryPred(string comp) {
    //    BUG   : typeof(mixin(comp)) should work
    typeof({ ElementType a, b; return mixin(comp);}())
    binaryPred(ElementType)(ElementType a, ElementType b)
    {
        return mixin(comp);
    }
}

unittest
{
    alias binaryPred!(q{a < b}) less;
    assert(less(1, 2) && !less(2, 1));
    assert(less("1", "2") && !less("2", "1"));
}
